Join us in Newark for a Debate Rally/Watch Party


The New Jersey State AFL-CIO welcomes our affiliates to join us in Newark to show support for our endorsed gubernatorial candidate, Phil Murphy, who will face off against Kim Guadagno in the first of two scheduled debates on October 10th at 7:00 p.m. at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center.

We will start the evening with a rally at 5:30 p.m. outside of the New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC), the debate venue, located at 1 Center Street, Newark, NJ 07102. Be sure to wear your union colors so that Ambassador Murphy knows we have his back. Once the debate begins, we will move to Kilkenny Alehouse at 7:00 p.m., which has been reserved exclusively for our debate watch party. Domestic drinks and light fare will be provided.

Labor needs a win this election season, and we all know that it’s going to take a lot of hard work, from knocking on doors and making phone calls to getting members out to vote on Election Day. This evening is not only an opportunity to join together in camaraderie, but also a way to thank you for the work that you do.

Please RSVP to Joyce Desmond at 609-989-8730 or so that we can make the necessary preparations. Let us know if you have any questions. We hope to see you on October 10th as well as on the campaign trail.
